You know like if some of its bottom -- for adults first inning two out nobody else. You know -- Somebody ought to try to get his feet and you know for strike out there that. Okay -- whenever. But you know because of the -- -- position and you know things like that strikeout to infamy -- that that's about it. You've gone to the plate trying to hit a home run. I mean that's via. -- you're good when I mean who what I what I think like that we got to put it. You know. The first thing to put the ball in play you know source slowing and everything but apartheid you know they're going about turning it over. Presume to be a Mulligan usually swing at balls. That. I can hit harder hit out so. -- them like -- of trying to hit home run book deal don't -- to kind of build it up a little -- to -- innocent people. Whatsoever. You know because I was a contact guy you know I'm not -- and I've -- to the downs team player moves a runner over those kind of things era in.

You got any problem with up pitchers have -- on -- gloves. Now I don't do that I mean I don't know you know I don't know that helps. Matters -- -- for -- but it. Don't know not a lot of that's your -- -- it helps move the ball or whatnot. Yeah I was wondered about that when Davey Johnson did that with the Ralston. But you do it during a regular season game -- that's what I was surprised about. Yeah you know and -- you know.
